  • How long can you keep Molassas & Karo Syrup

    I'm cleaning the pantry and came across 2 bottles of Karo Syrup and a bottle of Molassas.  I'm not sure how long they have been in there.  Does anyone know their shelf life?

     

     

    Thanks,

    I use mine until it starts to crystalize, then you can heat it up once more and use it and then after that I get rid of it.....

    No crystals so I guess I'm okay with them all. With the cost of everything I hate to buy new if these are still okay. Thank, Jan

    I've had some molassas that probably came over on the Mayflower!  I used it last year and it was fine although less potent flavored.  Wish molasses was available in little one cup or smaller size bottles.  I use maybe a quarter cup with cookies at Christmas time then the rest of year it sits forgotten in the back of the cupboard.  I don't refrigerate my molasses.  Karo doesn't last too long at this house so can't give any advice about that.

    nix_mom, My molassas may have come on the same ship as yours.   I use very little molassas and also wish they would sell it in smaller amounts.

    My ancient Karo has developed mold on occasion, then I pitch it. If it is clear and smells sweet, I use it.

    Generally, molasses have a shelf life of 2 years, and corn syrups, 1 year.  Sometimes recipes won't turn out as well when using older ingredients.

     Why not sell the Molasses in a tube? I don' tuse it very often either because I don' tlike molasses cookies. Someone needs to start t thread with recipes so we can use up our bottles! lol
